Great White North : adorable gift knits by Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel

Alexa and Emily are dreaming of a white christmas this year as they bring you ‘Great White North’, a collection of holiday and gift knits.  Things for home, hearth, and plenty of hand-knitted goodies to fill your stockings.  For the lovers, there is a pretty Christmas sweater, sumptuous shawl, and accessories for your tall dark and handsome man.  For parents and grandparents experiencing winter anew through the eyes of little ones, there are tiny red mittens to wear as they learn to make their first snowball, and adorable ornaments for the Christmas tree.

Make a mug of cocoa with too many marshmallows, snuggle up next to the fire, and relax into this collection of classic wintery knits.  With projects sized from baby to grandpa, Great White North has perfect holiday knits for you, your little darling, and the entire family.

Great White North Preview:

A family of hats; baby Hunter and Emily are wearing the bonbon slouch, designed in ‘manly’ and ‘lady’ versions, sized from baby to adult large!  Jordan is wearing the tall dark and handsome hat and scarf – a simple textured set of accessories, perfect for gifting.

Snowflake Sweater

Cute and sexy, snowflake is the perfect holiday party sweater; for cute little girls and grown up ladies alike.  The delicate lace yoke is knit in rows, and the rest of the sweater is very simple stockinette stitch in the round, for nearly-seamless knitting!  Ladies sizes include optional waist shaping instructions.

Drift is a sumptuous cabled shawl or centre-out baby blanket, perfect for cuddling (or swaddling) on the cool winter evenings!  Baby Jones looks mighty comfy laying au natural on this soft, cabled creation!

Marshmallow is a squishy, deliciously simple pair of garter stitch gloves, designed for knitting satisfaction and perfect for gifting!  With a turned over cuff and an interesting button, marshmallow is a sweet and uncomplicated delight!

Tall dark and handsome is a set of accessories for your difficult-to-knit-for loved ones.  A subtle stitch pattern lends some structure and interest to the hat, scarf, and cowl, without being fussy.  Jordan wears the hat loose and slouchy, but you can turn the brim to wear it as a sleek beanie.

Tall Dark and Handsome Cowl

We have had a fabulous time putting together this collection, and we hope you enjoy the knits just as much!  For a reminder when the patterns are available, and for great subscriber-only specials, sign up to keep in touch by getting our email updates.

With love and happiness  ♥  Alexa and Emily
